CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NYSE: RRD) (“RRD” or the “Company”) today announced the pricing of an add-on offering of $50 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 6.125% senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Notes”) at a price of 102.25% of the principal amount of the Notes. The Notes will be general senior secured obligations of the Company and will be guaranteed by the Company’s domestic, wholly-owned subsidiaries that guarantee the Company’s existing term loan B credit facility (the “Term Loan Facility”) and its amended and restated senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility (the “ABL Credit Facility”). The Notes will be issued under the same indenture pursuant to which, on April 28, 2021, the Company issued $400 million aggregate principal amount of 6.125% senior secured notes due 2026 (the “Initial Notes”). The Notes will be treated as a single series with and have the same terms as the Initial Notes, except that the issue price differs. The offering is expected to close on May 10, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay approximately $50.0 million aggregate principal amount of the loans outstanding under the Term Loan Facility and for general corporate purposes. Prior to the closing of the offering, the Company may borrow under the ABL Credit Facility to repay such amount of the loans outstanding under the Term Loan Facility, in which case the Company will use the net proceeds from the offering to repay such borrowing (without a reduction in commitments) under the ABL Credit Facility.
The Notes and the related subsidiary guarantee were offered to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and to non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and the related subsidiary guarantee have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.
This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of the Notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
